State lawmakers are considering a budget proposal that could effectively end Missouri’s family planning program, leaving thousands of low-income patients seeking birth control and sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment with nowhere to go. Speak out and urge your senator to stand up for Missourians’ access to care. Vocal opposition worked with Congress, now your Missouri senator needs to hear from you!
Here's what HB 11 does:
- Rejects millions of federal funds
- Cuts funding for the Women’s Health Services Program
- Recklessly and unnecessarily spends scarce state dollars all just to block Medicaid patients from choosing the best health care provider for annual exams, birth control, cancer screenings, and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment.
